How Music Works
By David Byrne

Byrne looks for patterns in disparate places like Wagnerian opera houses and African villages, and charts his own intellectual and ever-changing relationship with music, from his time with the Talking Heads to his latest work in a home music studio.

Back to Blood: A Novel
By Tom Wolfe

A story about Miami and its immigrants, set in what Wolfe calls  “the end of Anglo hegemony.” Wolfe's many characters are colorful and honest depictions. The literary lion stands by his belief that the best fiction rests on solid reporting.

Astray
By Emma Donoghue

Donoghue’s Room was a massive international hit. Novelists Ann Patchett and Colum McCann are raving about her follow-up, a collection of short stories. Astray’s century-jumping plotlines and nomadic characters make for an imaginative read.

Thanksgiving: How to Cook it Well
By Sam Sifton

The former New York Times restaurant critic manned the paper’s Thanksgiving Day cooking crisis hotline for years, so he knows the gravy mishaps of which he writes. His guide gives foolproof recipes and new takes on old standbys.

The Meat Lover’s Meatless Celebrations
By Kim O’Donnel

A meat eater herself, O’Donnel specializes in vegetarian dishes that promise you won’t miss the meat. Say good-bye to the bland and dry Tofurky! She provides Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s options for your vegetarian guests.
